Davenport University says the process of acquiring an empty apartment complex in Lansing has gotten too ‘political’. So Davenport is dropping its bid for the ‘Oliver Towers’.
Davenport offered to swap its current downtown campus for the property just north of the state capital building, where it planned to build a new college campus. But the Lansing City Council stalled the deal, to consider a competing offer from Lansing Community College.
Davenport University President Richard Pappas says the deal is now off the table.
